If you are looking for a gift for a child who likes crafts, then a great option would be a copy of “Make Your Own Gifts” from Dorling Kindersley. This great little hardback book has over 50 fantastic projects to make lovely handmade gifts for all occasions.
There are straightforward, step-by-step instructions along with the bright, detailed photographs that Dorling Kindersley does so well. This means that children of all ages and abilities can find something in this book they can make.
Handmade gifts can be so much more meaningful than their store bought counterparts and “Make your own Gifts” even has instructions on how to make your own wrapping paper, gift bags, and gift tags! That way you can make the gift and wrap it in a genuinely personal way.
From pom-pom scarves and felt animal bags, pop art cupcakes and flower pot lollies to rocket pen pots, polar bear savings banks and glass jar candle holders there truly is something for everyone to make and everyone to receive.
I am off now to supervise the creation of some fairy & Santa decorations and some gift bags from cereal boxes – wish me luck!
